It's been a quilting weekend...

It was a last minute decision to join Wendy at Sugarlane Designs 
and 75 quilters for FNSI...
My friend Christa came over 
so we could work on a quilt we are making
for Safe House....
this is how it looked Friday about 11 p.m. when she left for home.
I am lovin' it...
It is one of Bonnie Hunter's quilts from her book
String Fling called Zuckerwatte (Cotton Candy).
Bonnie's quilt was made with pink scraps.

Saturday morning Christa and I went to our GAAQG meeting...
after the meeting we had our annual quilters garage sale...
lots of great bargains....I did buy a little fabric...$2.00 to $3.00 per yard.
I didn't need it...I just couldn't pass up some of the great deals.
We were there from about 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and came back to
my house to stitch some more on the Safe House quilt.

Around 2 o'clock DH grilled some burgers for lunch...yummy!!

I called Mamaspark as she wanted me to help wrap a quilt she made for a wedding gift.
I told her how I would wrap it....
...roll it and wrap the 2 pillow cases around the outside 
and tuck the ends into the open end to secure the pillow cases and 
then tie with ribbon and a bow.
I told her to come over if she needed help.
She prettied gift at a wedding reception last night. 
Take a look at it here.  It is beautiful!!

Christa and I stitched and pressed, stitched and pressed some more.

Someone stopped for a cat wasn't me...we had pizza for dinner and 
when Christa left around 11:00 p.m. it looked like this.

This afternoon I am putting a binding on a quilt that 
Mamaspark is gifting for another wedding in August.
It is a beauty.
I luv the border...
the whole quilt was beautifully quilted by Liz Bowman, Milan Michigan.

If you missed my Moda Bakeshop recipe this month you should hop on over
and check it out. It's called Cobblestone Path.
Crazyquiltgirl Fabric Shop has the Dessert Rolls available...
...and some Moda Marbles Ombre yardage is coming soon.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday.
The weather in Canton Michigan is perfect today.

Have a wonderful day!!
Happy stitching!!
